Sigmar Polke : works on paper 1963-1974 by Margit Rowell( Book )

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sigmar Polke's thirty-five-year career, during which he has produced a vast range of work in all mediums, has earned him a reputation as one of the most significant artists of his generation. Born in 1941, he began his creative output around 1963 in Dusseldorf during a time of enormous social, cultural, and artistic changes in Germany and elsewhere. Few of his works demonstrate more vividly his imagination, sardonic wit, and subversive approach than the drawings, watercolors, and gouaches produced during the 1960s and early 1970s. Embedded in these images are incisive and parodic commentaries on consumer society, the postwar political scene in Germany, and classic artistic conventions." "This book is published to accompany the first American museum exhibition of Polke's drawings from this period, shown at The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1999. More than 300 works are illustrated, virtually all of them in color. They include small sketches in ballpoint and felt-tipped pen, larger sheets in watercolor and gouache, and still others stamped with a dot screen process."--Jacket

I don't make photographs, I take photographs : Photographien 1957-2003 von Manfred Leve by Manfred Leve( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit seiner besonderen Wahrnehmungsweise dokumentiert Leve Ereignisse in den 50er Jahren, die zur Entstehung neuer Kunstformen beigetragen haben. So wurde er der Zeuge von flüchtigen Aktionen und Performances der frühen Fluxus- und Happening- Bewegung. Doch Leve ist weit mehr als ein dokumentierender Teilnehmer. Seine Fotografien heben das Tatsächliche in einen höheren Bildsinn auf. Später, als es für Fotografen zur Modeerscheinung wurde, Aktionen, Performances und Happenings abzulichten, wandte er sich neuen fotografischen Herausforderungen zu: seine Bildsequenzen, wie die über Blinky Palermo, Gerhard Richter und Sigmar Polke, gehören zu den Meisterwerken der modernen Porträtfotografie
Sigmar Polke by Sigmar Polke( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in Italian and English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the main exponents of Capitalist Realism -- a current that arose in the 1970s in opposition to both the Socialist Realism widespread in the countries of Eastern Europe and Western pop art -- Sigmar Polke was a tireless experimenter of techniques, art materials, and chemical-alchemical processes. He created figurative paintings that drew on a vast iconographic repertoire often inspired by everyday life and abstract works with a powerful symbolic value sometimes created by chance through reactions between paint and other products. The book reproduces over eighty-five of his works (including photographs and sculptures, along with numerous paintings), giving a full account of Polke's reflections and studies made over his fifty-year career
